At first, turn away from non-virtue,
In the middle, dispel misconceptions of self,
Finally, go beyond all philosophical views,
One who understands this is wise indeed.
-Aryadeva, Four Hundred Verses, VIII
Please join Venerable Lama Kelsang for this 5 month comprehensive study of this Madhyamika treatise by Aryadeva. This treatise is included among the so-called “Thirteen Great Texts” which form the core of the curriculum in most Tibetan Buddhist monasteries.
Some of the topics covered are: impermanence, no self, compassion, the three poison, and emptiness.
